. russia is stepping up efforts to develop tourism on the islands. the government has built a new airport and is organizing foreign sightseeing tours. japanese consular officials say they oppose the plan as russia may use tourism to justify greater control of the territory. >>> a lucky tourist in south korea has been given an unexpected welcome. the chinese woman arrived in seoul to be greeted as this year's ten millionth tourist, a new record. seoul's international airport celebrated the occasion on wednesday with a welcome ceremony. the chinese visitor from shanghai was presented with flowers and a gift. the new record tops last year's 9.8 million tourists. the culture minister said tourists often return for repeated visits. many are attracted by the boom in korean popular culture. over 3 million japanese tourists have visited south korea so far this year. that's up 14% from a year earlier. but the numbers slumped nearly 4% in september. and over 20% in october. the south's culture ministry says strained relations with japan may be to blame. the two sides came to verbal blows in august

countries like china and russia, along with our traditional allies and a number of other states across the world have stepped up to impose the sanctions together. and you saw in the intervention in libya. we're not only our traditional european allies but our arab friends also stepped in to intervene in their own backyard. that is not leading from behind. that is leading in a way that enables others to step up, share the burdens, and be part of the solution. i think that, you know, this president has adopted a very strong and smart approach to the american leadership using all of the instruments of our national power. the military, when we must, but also much stronger on diplomacy, economic instruments and so forth. when it comes to defense and defense spending, i think this is a big difference between the two campaigns. this president has put forward a very, you know, a defense budget that is strategic in that sense it is driven by strategy but it's also driven by the legal constraints of the law that has been put in place, the budget control act those passed by a bipartisan majority

in the marketplace of ideas. with state capitalism in russia, china and the persian gulf, with political islam in the middle east. with a left wing grant a democratic populism in latin america. and then out expect nation that every country would actually converge and ultimately want to look like us will not prove to be accurate. let me give you a sense as to why i think we are heading toward diversity rather than toward ideological convergence. in my mind, the rise of the west followed a unique political and social trajectory. we as americans find our roots in the year 1000, 1100, when europe began to fragment. when the three traditional institutions of authority, the monarchy, the ability -- nobility and the catholic church began to lose their strangled over society. blacksmiths, early bankers, early professionals began to push back against traditional society. and that middle-class grew in size and strength and became the vanguard of the revolution that became the west. about religious pluralism to the reformation, and then when you about political pluralism. because monarchs said to the ris
